‘Queer’ Asia is a network of queer identifying scholars, academics, activists, artists and performers. It is a platform for inter-Asia collaboration, dialogue and research on issues affecting people who self-identify as LGBTQ+ or belong to other non-normative sexualities and gender identities in Asia, or Asian diasporas and beyond.
We began as the first ever global conference on LGBT/Queer issues in Asia, in June 2016. The conference – Queer Asia 2016 – was attended by over 500 people from over 15 different countries. All the way from South Korea, Hong Kong, India, Pakistan, Iraq, Lebanon, China, Singapore to Mongolia.
This year we organised second edition of our annual conference with Queer Asia 2017: Desire, Decolonisation and Decriminalisation (QA17). Focused on understanding the negotiations and representations of queer desire in the context of decolonisation and decriminalisation in postcolonial global societies.
